PlayStation 3 Misses Out Yet Again

Eskimo Press: One of the cons of being a PlayStation 3 is sometimes you get no love from the smaller independant studios. It's not because they don't love the PlayStation 3, but rather they just don't have the time or resources to port their titles over to the PlayStation 3. (Dark, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The previews of this game sound great.

Eurogamer – “Vampires Done Right”
“(DARK)…looks to bring about one of the most innovative approaches to stealth around. Part Deus Ex, part Splinter Cell, and part Vampire: The Masquerade, Dark’s unique mechanics look far too enticing to stay buried in the shadows.”

I'm guessing your wrote this? Nice Xbox avatar...

He did not wrote that. You may read it for yourself.


Fanboys... I only have a ps3, I love it and I have no desire whatsoever to get a 360 or a Wii. Never did trough this whole generation. But that doesn't mean I can't admit when something is interesting just because is not on the ps3. The guy got 20 disagrees and was called a liar just for quoting a website that complimented a game that is not coming to the ps3. Jesus! Really?! Grow up, people!

Edit: although, that WAS a flamebait article. Urgh. I give up. I guess the most reasonable thing to do is let fanboys poke each other and be happy with their war.

With God of war ascension, Beyond two souls, The last of us, Rain, Until dawn & puppeteer coming, I dont feel like Playstation owners are the ones missing out
TemplarDante  +   747d ago
Wow, seeming as Next Gen is 2/20 and the PS4 will be the easiest to code for, lets see the Sony haters and devs eat their shoe when small indie devs go with PS4.

If its a big seller on 360, it will more than likely end up on PS3 later anyway as it did with Braid, Limbo etc. So who cares if PS3 owners don't get it right away. With God of War right around the corner they won't notice - they'll be too busy playing a 10 times more better game.

is this a hd remake of a xbox game or is this something new. if its new its not that great animation is bad and the graphics don't look impressive. hell my 360 is going to miss out on this skip it.

You are joking right??? It looks like crap.
GribbleGrunger  +   747d ago
I'm devastated. I honestly thought this was a next gen game. To think that this is running on a 360/PC. Can you imagine what they'll be able to do with the PS4 and the 720?! Perhaps we'll get a port at a later date ... Jesus, I'm going to struggle to enjoy GOWA and TLOU when I know this gem is on another console.

@Dmd: You are referring to disagrees like it is a personal attack of some kind? Don't know if you understand the concept of antonyms, but disagree is the antonym (opposite in meaning) of agree. Thus, it will not take a genius to conclude that - based on his post - those disagreeing just don't share his opinion of the game? Little chip on your shoulder?

Dont be positive about the 360.

Its a terrible console with nothing good on it, How can you be so blind when people on this site are so vocal about how bad it is.

Clearly they are right and everyone who prefers the 360 or even owns a 360 is just a blind moron who enjoys throwing there money at a lost cause.

It does sound interesting I never played as a vampire in a game (besides blade). This one does look interesting.
Sako  +   748d ago
I love ambitious independent games. Let's hope this doesn't end up sucking like I Am Alive did
Sako  +   748d ago
Or maybe it should literally suck, being a vampire game :P

I like finding someone who can correctly use the word "literally."

Thank you for this.

stage88  +   747d ago
PS4 is getting announced on the 20th and we've still got great exclusives like the Last of Us and Beyond to get through first.

I came across a list of exclusives and upcoming games for the 360 though. Take your pick.

Problem is by skipping the ps3 they are skipping the meat of the people who would buy those quirky and unique titles.
E2S  +   747d ago
Exactly. How well do you think something like Journey, Flower, or even Heavy Rain would've sold on 360?
Blackdeath_663  +   747d ago
good point, i don't think that many of the great ps3 exclusives would have sold at all on in the xbox all my friends who use xbox seem only interested in shooters and i doubt any of them would even bother trying out a critically acclaimed game like ni no kuni for example or journey which has won multiple awards. i can understand if they tried and didn't like it but most completely ignore and look down upon all these great games if anything they are the ones missing out big big time
AngelicIceDiamond  +   747d ago
Trials evolution, Alan Wake American Nightmare, Dust an Elysian tale, Minecraft, Mark Of The Ninja and Dead Light all were critically acclaimed and sold great.

State Of Decay looks to be the most anticipated XBL game so far.

Journey is great title but that seems to be the only PSN title worth mentioning. That's literally the only PSN title that's big is Journey. I don't hear any other PSN titles beyond that.

If Xbox people bought Alan Wake and sold over a million copies. Tell me how would Heavy rain do on Xbox realistically?
trouble_bubble  +   747d ago

So you've never heard of any PSN titles besides Journey, yet you 'hear about' meh 360 titles like Deadlight with its 68% metacritic average and consider that a "critical success"? PSN's DeadNation and its significantly higher 77% avg say hi.

You namedrop the standalone Alan Wake: American Nightmare which had a 76% avg, while conveniently forgetting that PSN exclusive inFamous: Festival of Blood scored HIGHER at 78%. Never heard of inFamous? Dude, c'mon now. Last year's PSN exclusive Unfinished Swan did better than Wake as well at 79%.

You mention Minecraft at 82%. Why? PSN had exclusive Dyad at 82% last year as well.

You mention last year's Dust: An Elysian Tale at 83%, yet PSN had Sound Shapes at 84%, a higher score again.

Okami HD at 90%, WipEout at 87%, Flower at 87%, CritterCrunch at 87%, PixelJunk Shooter at 87%, Shatter at 86%. If you had a PS3 you'd know PSN has many critical successes, and they aren't on PC either like Mark of the Ninja.

As far as how Heavy Rain would do on 360, well, there -are- different audiences, and Alan Wake is a shooter at heart. How did other non-shooters like Dead Souls do when they came over to 360? Demon's Souls sold almost 2 million on PS3, Dead Souls is at around 1.42 million according to vgchartz estimates. On the 360, Dead Souls only sold 600,000, less than half.

Well it is releasing on Steam, and people do buy quirky titles on there as well. Since I own a PC and a PS3, but not an Xbox, I guess I won't miss out.

However, there is an edit to the article with sources saying it is coming to PS3, although it doesn't have a confirmed announcement or release date, so who knows.
Darth Stewie  +   747d ago
Why is it that the PS3 only is missing out. Did they forget about another system called the Wii U is missing this title also.
Good news for 360/PC owners I guess.

Well, since its on PC, I'll just get it there.
Blackdeath_663  +   747d ago
agreed, if its available on pc that's always the first option i use consoles only for exclusives and online games like fifa which everyone ever plays on consoles too.
Spinal  +   747d ago
Same, if this game is any good then i'll get it on my PC, although I have a 360 an PS3. Pc is still my main hub for games.

Next gen tho I'll only be getting the PS4. I'm done with xbox, no more paying for live and no interest in halo an gears which are the only exclusives they have left. PS exclusives are wonderful cant wait for GoW and Last of Us this year.

He's talking about the downloadable game on the PS3. You know, the one that won so many awards?

Yeah...that one. But you wouldn't know that, right?

Buubles up for funny. Classy lol.
EskimoPress  +   747d ago
I think the issue is rather that the smaller, indie, studios don't have the funds or resources to be able to port to the PlayStation 3.

The Xbox 360's structure is a lot more convenient to develop for and a lot more accommodating to indie developers who have experience developing for Windows.

However, one could argue that the PlayStation 3 receives more quality titles than the Xbox 360.

DigitalSmoke  +   747d ago
Bullshit article.

Sony has been suporting small studio's for yeeeaaars, and is far from missing out on exclusive titles like these.
Microsoft's trying to copy their ways but losers posting their stupid low brain level articles have no idea.

Look at all the Disagrees proves the bullshit this muppet spits.
plaZeHD  +   747d ago
And this is supposed to be a bad news? Developers not porting a terrible game to any console is actually a good news.
Looks like Vampire DLC for Alpha Protocol. If they don't have the resources to put it on PS3 then they obviously don't have enough resources to make it a quality game so nothing of value was lost.

Kennytaur  +   747d ago
Misses out "yet again"? This may be a cool game, but it's not like the PS3 doesn't get many great downloadable titles. I'd say it even gets more and better ones than the 360. Just look to last year for proof.

I'll be playing it on my PC, with a 360 controller.
broken_back-man  +   747d ago
in all reality wpuld you want to play a game that is about vampires? unless you own a 360 or wiiu and have no games to play I would see no interest in this game personally ....vampires reappy....
smashcrashbash  +   747d ago
So at the end you claim that it is no big loss to the PS3 but you title is 'PlayStation 3 Misses Out Yet Again'. I see. So you create flamebait then cover your @$$ at the end by saying it doesn't really matter anyway.And then to add to it Sony has supported indie developers before like Joe Danger,Flower and Journey.So Sony has given these people resources when they didn't have any of their own.So how is it a PROBLEM to port an indie game or be a small developer? Sony has helped both indie and smaller developers make games for their system so how is this any different?
